Lake Tahoe to Yosemite

We took our time and drove the scenic route through the mountains from Lake Tahoe, headed for the little town of Lee Vining which is next to Mono Lake and our base for visiting Yosemite National Park. When we arrived the whole area was totally smoke logged thanks to a forest fire that was burning close to Yosemite, we drove right past Mono Lake without seeing it and we we had no choice but to keep driving until we got out of the smoke. Thankfully we didn’t have to drive too far and we found a place to camp in clearer air just a few miles down the road where we based ourselves for a few days. 

Unfortunately the Yosemite valley was pretty smokey so we didn’t get the amazing vistas we were hoping for but it was great to visit anyway!
